TV NEWS: Jeffery Dean Morgan Cast as Negan on AMC’s The Walking Dead

November 10th, 2015 by Jake Tanner Comments



It’s official folks! Everybody’s favorite foul-mouthed villain is on his way to AMC’s hit show, The Walking Dead. He will be played by none other than Jeffery Dean Morgan who has also starred in The Watchmen, Grey’s Anatomy, and The Losers.

Negan first appears in The Walking Dead #100 with his trusty baseball bat covered in barbed wire, Lucille after Rick kills of a number of men in his group, The Saviors. His entrance  also ushers in the death of a major character within the main group. While Negan is well-known for dropping plenty of F-bombs throughout the comic series, surely AMC will have to either clean up his language or censor him until the show is released on Netflix. (My hope is the latter)


Negan will be introduced during the season 6 finale and will surely be the prominent story-line throughout the next season and possibly more seasons to come.

What do you guys think of this casting? Are you big fans of Negan? Let me know in the comments below!

Big thanks to for the scoop!

I'm 25 years old and I'm hugely passionate about comic books and I also LOVE gaming. The birth of my daughter, Abby, rekindled my passion for comic book stories. I grew up on them and I want nothing more than to share that passion with her! I'm a pretty typical guy, I love sports. (NHL-Blackhawks, NBA-Lakers, MLB-Cubs, and NFL-Daaaa Bears!). I've been writing for a pretty big portion of my life, and I've been nominated for multiple awards for some of the poetry I’ve written! Happy reading and follow me on Twitter @xJatmanx.
